While on vacation, Chelsea target Ousmane Dembélé dropped a major Barcelona transfer hint with a five-word message to a fan. The Blues are reportedly keen on signing the Frenchman as boss Thomas Tuchel wants to resurrect his Chelsea assault ahead of the 2022/23 season. If Inter Milan loan talks with Romelu Lukaku fail, Todd Boehly and his board of directors are expected to focus on incoming business.
Jules Kounde and Ousmane Dembele are two high-priority transfer targets that Tuchel has mentioned to the Blues management, and despite initial optimism that a deal for both could be completed swiftly, there has been a bit of silence on the pair. After returning from his vacation, the Barcelona player will make his final decision. However, nothing has been agreed upon in terms of money and contract between the current World Champions and Dembele's agent Moussa Sissoko as of yet.
As Chelsea supporters wait for new updates in this ongoing transfer drama, every tiny hint revealed throughout the summer will be scrutinised by all who are interested in where the 24-year-old will play in the 2022/23 season. A Barcelona fan who ran into Dembele while on vacation used the opportunity to learn more about what's going on, and his comments were quite crucial. Tuchel, who is aiming to unlock and unleash Borussia Dortmund's form of Dembele in his frontline next season, isn't impressed with his five-word total response to this set of questions. "Yes, I’m fine in Barcelona," came Dembele's reply.
